As this special season is upon us, we are all so busy buying gifts, decorating our houses, mailing cards, and making goodies in the kitchen. I hope you are also listening to beautiful Christmas music, enjoying special Christmas plays, and thinking and talking about the reason we celebrate. There is nothing more touching to me than hearing a child tell about the birth of Jesus! As you keep Christ in Christmas may we all remember to pray for those that do not know our Saviour and to try to show extra patience and kindness as we encounter these people throughout our busy days.
Our TouchPoint Team will be taking time to celebrate the holidays with our families just as you will. Remember the following important information regarding our Christmas holiday hours for support:
Please note that TouchPoint offices are closed December 25 - January 1. Only issues deemed by TouchPoint as critical will be worked on during this time. Issues considered critical include: errors processing contributions, event registration errors, TouchPoint system or server outages, etc. Non-critical issues will be worked on when TouchPoint offices open again on January 2nd.
Tips for your Toolbox
A few weeks ago, we had a webinar all about Search Builder. If you did not attend or if you know someone that might benefit from this, here is the video of that hour-long session.

TIP: Did you know you can find help documents by using the Index on the TouchPoint Documentation site? You can! The Index is like a glossary. Look there for keywords that are links to the articles.
In Case You Missed the Blog Posts
Hide DOB/Age for Specific Users
Add a Setting to your database that will prevent users such as OrgLeadersOnly from seeing the DOB and Age of people in the database.
Alt Name Search and Display
Add one Setting to display the Alt Name (Chinese or English) in the name search; add another to allow part of a Chinese name to work in a name search.
New User Role
Finance View Only
This new role is great if you want users to be able to view summary reports for contributions but not be able to view details.
New Search Builder Condition
Recent Family Adult Last Attend
This new condition will find adults that did (or did not) attend a specific Program/Division/Org looking back a number of days.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
